As a principally owned 5th generation family business, along with senior management partners, we take a long term strategy. Our goal is to startup or acquire, grow, and hold. We are unlike typical private equity groups that look to fuel short term growth and sell. We are also different from some family offices who might share our long term views, but often have a more diverse set of independent holdings. Our strategy is to maintain economic diversity while staying within our core competencies. This allows us to better leverage our operational synergies, shared resources, and economies of scale. Additionally, maintaining a deep understanding of the industries we serve, it allows us to provide stronger directional guidance and support to our entities. Each scenario is unique. However, the following is a list of resources we can provide to start ups, partial interest investments, or full acquisitions.
To be a market leader in the consolidation of businesses adjacent or vertical to the metal fabrication and specialty contracting industries.
To create superior value to team members, customers, shareholders, sellers, and communities by leveraging our economies of scale, our corporate culture, and our core values
We take a two pronged approach to our acquisition strategy. Those that are fully integrated businesses, and those that remain autonomous holdings. In either scenario, we often look for opportunities that are operationally sound and sales distressed, allowing us to leverage two of our greatest strengths; business development and human resources. This approach has proven effective and gives us a strong opportunity for growth and upside.
This involves acquiring businesses which might not be suited as “bolt ons” to our core business, either by way of geography or the nature of the business. We still look to acquire businesses that are closely related to our existing operations and ideally they are immediately adjacent to our vertical to them. We specifically look for niche businesses that are complementary to ours in one of the following ways.
Either a), they provide us with customer/industry economic diversification, or b), they serve a similar industry to one or more of our existing businesses, providing sales and growth synergies each direction (not necessarily overhead/ cost cutting synergies). Within these businesses, we are open to outside partnerships and partial interest ownership.
